Variety are reported that the long gestating film adaptation of the hit xbox game GEARS OF WAR has finally landed a producer in Scott Stuber (Ted, Identity Thief, Safe House, Battleship) and that EPIC (the game creator) has commenced working on a script. The production has yet to find a studio to host it but with Stuber’s presence, the current love towards game adaptations (Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell both in the works) and the strength of the GEARS OF WAR brand it won’t be long.
GEARS OF WAR takes place in the future on a planet called SERA where a the human race there is under attack by monstrous underground beasties known as the Locust Horde. The only like of defence is a crack military outfit of big gun carrying, death dealing meatheads who shoot, blow up, decimate, bash. crash and dismember them en masse.
